Painting your front door cleans up the outside of your house in a big way. Not only is your front door a useful entry into your home, but it can also be a curb appeal statement. Put your personality on display for your neighborhood to see by painting your door a bold color, practicing feng shui by painting it red, or by channeling your inner interior designer by coordinating your front door paint with your exterior’s trim and accents. You can even add a window to the door for a complete makeover.
We’ve created a guide for you on how to paint a front door, and we cover everything from which paints are best for front doors, front door color inspiration, and the steps to take when it comes down to painting.
Keep in mind that when you're ready to learn how to paint a front door, take some time to plan ahead. You'll want all your supplies handy, and you'll want a sunny day with an average temperature between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. And don't paint on a windy day because you'll end up with bugs, dirt, and debris in your new paint.
